Polestar 4, the SUV coupe by the Scandinavian EV marque, is now officially on sale in Australia with a starting price of $81,500 plus on-road costs.
With first deliveries slated for August, the Polestar 4 is the fastest Polestar production car to date, with it slotted between the Polestar 2 sedan and Polestar 3 medium SUV in terms of size and price.
In its most potent form, the Polestar 4 Long Range Dual Motor can sprint from 0 to 100km/h in just 3.8 seconds thanks to 400kW of power and 686Nm of torque afforded by the dual electric motors – one at each axle. This model has a driving range of 580Nm (WLTP). A disconnect clutch allows the car to disengage the front electric motor when not needed, to maximise range and efficiency.
The Long Range Single Motor variant features a 200kW / 343Nm electric motor at the rear and a driving range of 610km (WLTP).
Both versions are capable of fast charging up to 200 kW DC and 22 kW AC. Bi-directional charging hardware is included, with vehicle-to-load (V2L) functionality planned to be made available at a later date, providing for external devices to draw power from Polestar 4.
Like the other Polestar models, the Polestar 4 features an Android Auto powered infotainment system that utilises a 15.4-inch landscape-oriented screen. With Google built-in, including Google Assistant, Google Maps and Google Play, Polestar continues to offer a connected experience. Wireless Apple CarPlay is also included.
The instrumentation panel is a 10.2-inch display and includes speed, battery and range information. Also fitted is a head-up display (HUD) with a massive 14.7-inch projection area in front of the driver that relays key vehicle, telephony and navigation information to the windscreen.
A clever ‘snow mode’ function for the HUD switches the text colour from white to yellow, improving visibility in snowy environments.
Several options are available. The Plus Pack comprises comfort and technology upgrades, with the Pro Pack adding 21-inch wheels and subtle design details. The Nappa upgrade can be specified in addition to the Plus Pack, and includes animal welfare-secured Nappa leather upholstery with ventilation and massage, additional headrest speakers for the front seats and rear comfort headrests.
The Pilot Pack includes Pilot Assist and its extended features, and is included as standard in all variants. The Performance Pack increases the performance look and driving experience of the Long range Dual motor version, with 22-inch wheels, 4-piston Brembo brakes, Polestar Engineered performance chassis tuning and Swedish gold details for the brakes, seat belts and valve caps.
